That is part of the reason Kane’s Davis Gardner is the Week 8 D9Sports.com District 9 Football Player of the Week.

Gardner had three interceptions while adding a touchdown catch and grabbing five passes for 64 yards to help Kane claim its second straight AML South title with a 14-3 win over previously unbeaten Brockway.  

Joining Gardner on the District 9 Honor Roll are 15 players including last week’s Player of the Week Kyle Hopson, who had another 200-yard receiving night for DuBois.

The Player of the Week and Honor Roll honors will continue through the conclusion of the regular season with next week being the last week for the honors in 2016.
